Quackery: As they say, if something "seems too good to be true", that's usually the case. This junk has no possibility of helping herpes. Don't waste your money. The only treatments for herpes that make any difference are the prescription drugs acyclovir, valacyclovir, and famciclovir. Ignore anything else. ...Read more
"Novirin and Gene- Eden- VIR are natural antiviral supplements backed by clinical studies followed by FDA guidelines"- Is that true? Can I use them??
Garbage: Pure hooey. Because companies that manufacture garbage like this have such strong lobbyists, they can put whatever they wish on the label--so long as they print that they do not claim the junk will treat any disease. I have many patients with severe immune problems and if this junk worked I would be extraordinarily happy. Treat hepatitis C? And all those others? Bull. ...Read more

Not yet: The spinal cord is highly organized, contained cells, nerve fibers, blood vessels, and supporting cells. Restoring it to its original state is not possible at this time. It has extra capacity, so if enough of it is intact and functional, taking any residual pressure off of it may lead to improvement and some recovery. If the injury is complete (no function below the injury), recovery is unlikely. ...Read more

Losing weight: Doesn't quite work like that. Even if your weight were to be lower right after exercise, it is just from sweat loss.

Lots and lots: Bullying is in no way restricted to childhood and adolescence. We may call it different things--harrassment, intimidation, nagging--but the power relationships is the same: someone bigger or stronger asserts control over another person. Spousal abuse would be an excellent example. The main difference, hopefully, is that adults have greater coping skills to deal with such behaviors. ...Read more

No one wins.: If one is bullied either emotionally or physically, revenge is not the answer (check out the new tv show that dissects the complexities). Learn an approach to stand up to the bullying that will raise yourself esteem, and make the aggressor look silly. If you are young, consider informing the bully's parents directly. Or be the bigger person, and ignore the bullying, slough it off. ...Read more
